he biggest question facing the obama administration. >> i want to take one for the team and ask a big question. did the president know she was lip syncing and does he care? >> i have not had the discussion with him. i don't know that i understand the variety and contradictory reports on the matter and i would refer you to j-sick or pick. >> jennifer: that refers to the committees that organize the inauguration. bill press did follow up with a more pointed question, and jay carney danced around it and similar questions from other reporters. unfortunately we may never know what happened on that stage with beyonce and whether she lip synced. check us out on line at current.com/thewarroom website. thanks so you all joining us here in "the war room." >> cenk: welcome to "the young turks." we have a great show ahead for you tonight. secretary of state hillary clinton went up the hill and the republicans were aggressive and hot style. get a look. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables fr

this earlier today. what's your take on the obama administration's signal here to the bankers? >> in a sense it's an amazing political pick in that the obama administration is banking on the idea that the elite media and politicians will see the word prosecutor in mary jo white's resume and say that means she must be tough on crime forget that she hasn't been a prosecutor for a decade and has been defending the biggest most powerful wall street c.e.o.'s in the country. politically, it's banking on voters, on the elite media simply not knowing who she really is. i think as a citizen as somebody concerned with the fact that the administration hasn't prosecuted a single wall street banker connected to the financial crisis, i think this is a terrible pick. i think wall street is celebrating right now saying the person who's in in the s.c.c. looks like she's going to get tough on us, but we know she has a record of defending our interest. >> >> cenk: the new york times explains she's not going to face much opposition from the republicans. >> shocking. >> cenk: michael david and i are clear on this.

for the obama administration to stand strongly on the side of fairness and equality. one of them is that the supreme court is going to take up marriage equality in march. his department of justice will have the opportunity to put in briefs and we know that the obama administration is opposing the so-called defense of marriage act. i think the real question that came up at the white house press briefing is whether they will oppose the discriminatory prop 8 from california. the question is whether states can discriminate and what the president thinks about that. i hope that he will take the logical next step from his beautiful remarks yesterday and weigh in on both issues. >> john: wayne let me put it to you. we saw it in the first term. the president took away don't ask, don't tell for our troops serving and even more powerfully, came out in favor of marriage equality even if that wasn't any policymaking on his part. what would you like to see him do in the second term? >> we've come so far so fast and what i would like to see the president do is consider openly gay person for cab

.i.a. and the obama administration cooperated with filmmaker catherine bigelow in providing information about the raid that killed osama bin laden. however, had the pro torture anti-muslim congressman simple by waited to see the film perhaps he wouldn't have had as much of an issue with its content. almost immediately after the film's release a number of critics took issue with the way the film portrays the use of torture as a key to tracking down bin-laden. from acting c.i.a. director michael morell releasing a statement saying, quote, the film creates a strong impression that the enhance the interrogation techniques were the key to finding bin laden. the truth is that multiple streams of intelligence led c.i.a. analysts to conclude that bin laden was hiding in abbattabad. some came from detainees subjected to enhanced techniques, but there were many other sources as well. contrary to what her film might suggest "zero dark thirty" director catherine bigelow seems to agree. >> i think it's been a very controversial issue. it's been debated since the early part of 2000 and it will ton to be debated. si

the obama administration handled the benghazi attack and the susan rice explanation but he just was crisp. he made his point. lot of shots. asked questions. overdue giving a speech. the reason that i think johnson got under her skin is when you keep asking her about the susan rice talking points, that's why she didn't -- i think that's why she erupted. it is not as if she had not by that point explained it had been covered. rand paul saying you should have been fired and all of that. that is not as constructive a questioning as find out something new, senator. you have -- you have in the hot seat. ask a question. if you think she's going to be on the job or they're hiding something, ask a question that will bring out a new fact. >> bill: yeah. here's rand paul with his -- two things he says here. number one, i would have fired you. before that, talking about equating this to 9-11. pipsqueak paul. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9-11. and i really mean that. and i've been pre

the terrorist who killed them. they blame the state department who nominated him in the obama administration. whose side are they on anyway? give them hell hillary today. give them hell. we will talk about that and more on the "full-court press." the latest: today's current news update lisa has it out in los angeles. >> hey bill majority leader is giving an ult mader. reid is giving mccog36 hours to come up with a plan, to about midday tomorrow. over the last few years we have seen a record number of filibusters from republicans. now reid wants to shift the power to the minority, to require 41 members to vote to maintain a filibuster rather than the usual 60 votes to end it. many democrats and filibuster reform advocates are sponsoring that plan, calling it an effective middle path and a step in the right direction. if mcconnell refuse to see agree, reid says he is willing to pursue the constitutional option of changing the rules even without the usual two-thirds vote. republican senators are reintroducing a bill to eliminate obamacare's individual mandate.

a chance to talk about this. the obama administration has now geared all of the volunteers to a new organization called organizing for action. and michelle obama was the first person to make a message for organizing for action. over the weekend, gave a very strong pitch for getting america involved in passing this agenda. again, going over the head of congress and making sure that americans have a to do list as well in terms of persuading congress to get these pieces and policy done. >> john: david shuster who is not freezing because it is an unseasonably warm day. david, how is it down there for you in the crowd? are people getting hopped up to a fevered pitch now that the big guns are starting to roll out? >> i think people are excited. we've got all of the flags. crowd is back to about 12th street. certainly filling up. one thing i wanted to point out as you look at the amazing pictures from inside the capitol, the obama campaign, some of the remnants of the obama campaign, the board of directors helping to put together the inauguration. one of the things they recognize is that y

in the community. >> when you look at the last administration who never went in the community. >> the obama who made the most impact is michelle. you have seen her doing a lot more work at schools between her gardens that she has at the whitehouse, you know, that has local school kids. she has been to places like anacostia high school. i can't remember the name of the movie but the child obesity movement has put her in direct contact with a lot more of this community, i think, than anything the president has done, which is fine. there is nothing wrong with that. he showed up at the chili bowl once, i believe with the former may. that was the end of that. at that couple of restaurants but i would say michelle is the one who has the most impact on the city. i have no problem with that. >> ted's bulletin. she has been to good stuff, just down the street. that barbecue joint. >> ken income's. >> dickies is off h street. >> i am trying to think. i am where it is. i can walk on to it. the fish shall sandwich is understanding it a little bit. four pieces of fish on top

barack obama as one of the areas where he has done significant work on behalf of the administration in this first four years and we'll continue on those interests going forward. it's an interesting thing jennifer in global diplomacy economics is becoming a far more meaningful element of global diplomacy. there is now an assistant secretary of state that focuses on energy issues, and i think senator kerry will continue this dialogue because it is really a foundation. hillary clinton promoted the concept of commercial diplomacy and i think senator kerry agrees with that emphasis. >> jennifer: i totally agree. we'll see what happens on keystone. but there is another issue that he'll have to deal with with respect to our place in the world, and that's the u.s.' use of drones. i guess they'll launch an investigation into u.s. drone policy. does the u.s. need to be more transparent on the issue in your opinion? >> i really do think so. and i think john brennan in his time at the white house, and presuming he moves over to the central intelligence agency, i think he philosophically has tha

put! the president had this to say cut one, about his time working. >> obama: i want the country to appreciate just what an extraordinary role she's played during the course of my administration and a lot of the success we've had internationally have been because of her hard work. >> i'm sorry. i have to disagree with patricia. that sounded like hillary's kickoff for 2016. >> john: i put this out to the brilliant folks in steph land. why do they do this? the president called "60 minutes" and wanted to do this joint interview. something they've never done before. why was it done? was it just a love letter thanking hillary clinton for her service? that's great. we have never seen this done for any cabinet member by a president. any theories? >> hmm. it was a kickoff. >> john: certainly seems that way. >> that's the only thing i can think of. jim? you seem like you're thinking about it. >> i can't see any other reason for it. yeah. >> john: it seems like it was very diplomatic. i have no doubt he's sincere about thanking her for her service to the nation and his administration. but
